IPL merchandise flying off shelves as cricket fever spreads in the city

As IPL fever spreads across the city, jerseys are being sold rapidly in and around the Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. K.K. Malaya, 62, who has been in the business for nearly 50 years, is one of them. According to him, “Almost a hundred people from each place– Kolkata, Chennai, Mumbai and Delhi–have flocked to Bengaluru to sell jerseys for the new season of Tata IPL (Indian Premier League)”, he says as he sits on the footpath, surrounded by a wide display of jersey from different IPL teams.
